Blu-ray disc lasers could help kill the coronavirus, according to UC Irvine researchers

UCI professor Chris Barty, who is leading the research team, envisions lasers in ventilation systems disinfecting the air, lasers as small as a key fob that could be used to sanitize hands and lasers built into face masks that clean the air as it filters through. “You can imagine many many ways you could deploy the technology if it’s cheap enough,” Barty said.
